As a IT guy, a Software Developer, a Microsoft technologies developer (from C++ to .NET ) with over 24 years development history, I still have to face to some awkward (embarrassed ? ) situations such as job interviews. I left school so many years, but some interviews still needed me to give correct answers for some basic computer and programming acknowledges, such as: What is C# ? What features does OO have ? or I was asked for writing code to give a good performance program to implement a scanning or searching case based on stack or queue ….
Microsoft is becoming cool. They are releasing more and more amazing technologies and expanding their technologies to be applied widely. I mentioned before, Google and Apple’s technologies seems were always welcome by young people since they thought those technologies were cool, but they thought the technologies which were came from Microsoft were most “old, out of dated”.
I was from a C/C++ developer when I worked on both of Windows and Unix platforms. When I worked on Unix system, I had at least 4 years did not touch any Windows develop technologies. After I left Unix environment, I realized Microsoft C# was approved as a standard by ECMA and ISO, then I turned into C# and .NET technologies world. After almost 12 years past, I realize Microsoft’s technologies never forced me leaving to another major technology and language such as Java, even Java and C# are very similar, but according to my received real requirement and finished applications, the .NET and related technologies have never become weak but become more and more stronger, more wider on applications.
Microsoft made lots of software, and even hardware devices. Also, Microsoft named lots of products which they released. If you are a developer, or if you used Microsoft products, you also know Microsoft keeps changing many product names and canceling many products, especially they cancelled when you just spent time to learn them. but what ever, you know a truth, Microsoft like to give names to their products, and, they always thought the names were great.
We had a Windows Server 2008 R2 P1 system, to be upgraded to Windows Server 2012 R2 which we had it on an installing CD.1: Insert the CD:
I upgraded Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 very early but I forgot to record the process I did. But I had some screen shots so let me post them here.
1: At beginning my system was Windows 8.1 pro, like this:
I was some confused on Mono project official site information: I had question about what .NET web technologies which Mono supported. I got information that Mono currently ONLY supported ASP.NET 2 from official content here.
(This blog copied from GoGoToTo.com with allowing )
Some Windows users got a network issue after upgrading Windows 8.1 or 7 to Windows 10: They could not access to internet. The network icon showed limited connection and a message “No Internet access”;
By now, I found the most cases were:
1: Network driver issue in Windows 10, with ONLY wireless network issue;
2: If you installed Hyper-V or other type Virtual Machines on existed Windows 8.1 pro system, you have more chance to get the No-Internet issue;
I had registered to Windows Insider Program and installed a Windows 10 Preview edition. In July 29, 2015 I thought I could update to Windows 10 RTM from existing Windows 10 preview version but actually I got failed at that day, so I ignored the updating until yesterday.
This time I got updating successfully with normal Windows Update processing. I read information from other internet articles, seems they mentioned a Microsoft account must be used if update Windows 10 preview to Windows 10 RTM, but actually I did not, I only login to my Windows 10 local account and got the updating package downloading and installed successfully.
We have a product which needs elder Ubuntu such as 12.04, we spent some time to get the right .iso version (not torrent file), finally we downloaded from this page (still specified by Ubuntu official website).
What we need is 32-bit PC desktop iso file, this is the link to click to download directly.
Just for record.
I tried to searched information about a clear times comparison but I did not get any. So let me personally share my thougt.
What I realized :
PC times is the Personal Computer times. In PC Times, Windows killed all other platforms such as Apple’s Mac, it was the king;
Internet times, PC was still in important role, we used PC to access internet, Windows was still the king;
